Reviving Indochina at the Boutique Kampot Hotel

There’s much to love about sleepy Kampot, situated along the Praek Tuek Chhu River southeast of the Elephant Mountains and just 5 km from the Gulf of Thailand. The town embodies its French colonial history with hundreds of pretty, faded heritage buildings seemingly frozen in time. Showcasing the magic of Kampot is the Boutique Kampot Hotel, the town’s first high-end boutique property to open in 2016. Owned and managed by a young professional couple from Phnom Penh, the hotel with its 18 spacious rooms are a true labor of love, from intricate, custom-designed molding on the hotel’s European-inspired façade to the vintage artefacts that adorn the sun-drenched lobby and restaurant where the included breakfast is served.

The uncommonly spacious rooms, however, are ultra-contemporary with emphasis on comfort and convenience in the cool slate floors, vintage-tiled bathrooms, and high-speed Internet. Tucked away on a quiet side street, the Boutique Kampot Hotel is just a 5-minute walk to the eclectic Old Quarter featuring superb international eats and the picturesque riverside where boats await to take guests on sunset cruises.
